Great post! I love that you were able to find the old advertising image!


awesome addition and how exciting to have the contributor's photo and the advertisement! What a lovely little bit of garment history.

Yes, so wonderful to have the pic and the ad. I love the bold graphic pattern and the contrast in the colors. Wish I had the figure to wear something like this!


Love, love, love this top and the supporting docs. What I find most interesting is the contrast between this and a modern crop top. Yes, in 1946 we will show you a midriff, but not a navel!
